Mission to North Korea

Language: The speech and Q & A will be in Japanese with English interpretation

Antonio Inoki has built up an unconventional resume over his 74 years. A wrestler-turned lawmaker who once set up his own political party called Sports and Peace, he is better known these days as an oddball diplomat trying to avert war with North Korea.

Inoki has visited the North over 30 times, despite flak in recent years from hardliners determined to enforce sanctions on the authoritarian state. In 2013, he was stripped of his parliamentary membership for 30 days after an unauthorized trip. Undeterred, he returned to Pyongyang last week, in time for the North’s Foundation Day, September 9th.

Inoki has just returned, to intense media interest. While he was there on another so-called mission of sports diplomacy, he met at least one senior politician. What was discussed? Inoki has agreed to come to the club and shed light on the current situation.
